It’s been about three months since my last blog post. Wow, time has absolutely flown by and a lot has happened. I got a subscription to Netflix, I started watching Breaking Bad and Orange is the New Black, I briefly…

Now that I’ve wrapped up my Round 1 applications, this will be my last official post. (Tragic, I know). When I decided to enter the Admissionado Blogger Contest, I had no idea having my own blog would be so much…

As I await interview calls for the R1 schools, I’m gearing up for next set of my applications. The good part is that I already have my stories on paper in a deep introspective way. My recommenders are more than willing to…

Walter: Rounding Out Round 1

So, you guys must be wondering what I’ve been up to post my HBS app submission. Well, not hard to predict, I’m making a back-up plan for any risk mitigation. Given the competitive nature of admissions, it’s good to apply…
